This brochure is one of many I collected in my youth. I spent many hours riding my bike around town and pestering my parents to take me to car dealers when we went on trips. Some dealers were understanding and told me to take what I wanted while others gaurded theirs more fiercely. The Chevrolet brochures were easy and, yes, I still have some on such things as Vegas and Monzas but the prize possessions many times required greater stealth. As a result I often made off with the bigger, glossier brochures probably meant only for display but how was I to know? Some meant a drive to the next town and others involved mailing the importers, disguised as an older male as only mail can do. Many times replies would come back with nice brochures and an offer of a test drive. If only they had known I didn't even have a license! The best had to be Rolls Royce who at one time ran an ad with an 800 number for a free brochure. I called about once a month and still have several pristine copies and the envelopes they came in. Some brochures I can't bear to part with yet. There's still something too special about the Maserati Bora and Merek brochure and, of course, the Ferrari ones. Nothing ignites the heart like a Ferrari and these little papers did eventually lead to my own. Who would have thought that a young boy's dream could go so far!

so dream a little and bid free from worry!

I remember these cars when they were the thing to have. Much more than a Rabbit but not as much headroom! The name has stuck with me, too, and thanks to it and an old Maserati I was never confused this summer in Sardinia when they said there was a Scirocco blowing. Though I knew it was only a wind my mind still saw a VW in need of a tow. I have others as well but its too bad nobody wants a Dasher brochure!

These brochures have all remained in my attic, filed in order, with care, protected from the elements and will be shipped in a protective manner.
